Planning for Artists, Musicians, Authors, and More
Whether you are a musician, author, artist, chef, or inventor, it is important to protect your work and ensure that the fruits of your labors will continue to benefit future generations after you pass away. If you are one of these professionals, here are some things you might want to think about:
How will my work be valued for estate and gift tax purposes?
- Should a business entity or trust own the rights to my works, or should I own them personally?
- How can I manage taxes and other financial planning with a volatile income?
- Should I transfer ownership of my intellectual property while I am still alive, or via estate planning documents?
E-book: "Estate Planning For Founders, Pharoahs, & Pioneers"
Close to 70 % of all businesses in the United States are closely held or family owned. Business owners are perhaps most in need of proper planning and often most oblivious to it. Our upcoming E-Book, "Estate Planning for Founders, Pharaohs, and Pioneers" walks a family business through planning needs from formation all the way to succession as well as how to protect themselves from liability, how to plan around taxes, and how to protect what makes their business special. In short every small business needs it.
